I'm working on a couple radios myself right now.

Just got a old Holiday 888 Picnic radio working - just need to clean up the wooden case. It sounds great. Amazed with the reception on it.

Lots of good money these days on late 70's through to the early 90's radios, cassette players, and some CD players. I've been doing brisk sales on restored items from those years. The earlier stuff (8-Track, AM only radios) is slowing down somewhat - but still OK if you get cheap stuff to repair.

I would love a top quality 4 track cassette player something to go in my wall unit, so I understand the good sales.


but this topic is useless without pics

Old Radio Pictures

Here are three: A GE tube set from the 1930's, a transistor set from the '70's in the shape of a globe and a transistor set from 1981 (I think) in the shape of a car:
